While I cannont attest that I was truly "in gear" as it were, to go on a crazy (manic!) cooking binge, it was a great day...
My doc assures me that I'm not dead just yet, and friend paid a visit... Now what will the crazykitchen whip up for dinner?
I began with ground beef and pasta... Cooked the meat with chopped green pepper and onion... dash of salt, of course. A splash or two of Worcestershire... where next? I made stroganoff last week, so was leaning toward a "goulash" type meal, when I remembered
a partial jar of store bought marinara... great, there's the tomato base! What else might I find? Added a small can of tomato sauce, adjusted seasonings, and put on the pasta to cook. Once that had all done as it was meant to, and I mixed the two together,
I decided that as I had some really poor mozzerella in the frige, I'd add it... Kinda a lasagne type casserole? At the last minute, I remembered about 1/2 C. or so of older cottage cheese... why not? Baked it a bit, topped it with more mozzerella, and back
into the oven. Quite edible, surprisingly, and I was able to clear out a number of containers in the frige... a bit of this, a dab of that! Considering my first thought was simply pasta, beef, stewed tom's (and perhaps additional tom. sauce...) it really
was a rather tastey meal in a pot, as it were!
So, when the doc asked if I had any "issues," I asked was it "normal" for me to sleep 9+ hours a night, and still not really want to get up... not to mention the twice a day in between, that I almost nod off on my chair! Turns out, that at least 4 of my daily
meds are known for causing severe or extreme drowsiness! Three are "head meds," so as I have a shrink appt tomorrow, I most certainly will ask her advice... Change the med(s) change dosages, eliminate?
It just occurred to me that I owe some thank you's to some of you (well all, most likely!) Anyway, I'll have to spend some time this eve looking back, and making notes of topics, names and recommendations!
Till then, be well, be happy, be CRAZY!
